Setting up Yousician for a lesson depends on the size of your class. With one or two students, teachers can have Yousician on their desktop or tablet, so that the student(s) can easily view the screen.
- Pros. This can provide differentiated instruction, tailored to the needs of each student. They receive instant feedback on every note and can progress at a pace that suits them. Their individual progress is also tracked. You can move from student to student to assist, while the rest of the class remains engaged.
- Cons. It requires that most or all students have a device they can run Yousician on, and their own Yousician account.
When teaching groups or classrooms, teachers use a projector or smartboard so that all the students have an unobstructed view.
- Pros. Lots of fun for the students as they all get to play and learn together. It’s usually simple to set up with existing classroom equipment.
- Cons. Since they’re all playing together, Yousician can’t provide a tailored learning experience (e.g. personalised feedback, progress tracking etc).
